Announcing the R3 2020 release of our mocking framework JustMock, which includes support for .NET 5, improvements for the Azure Pipeline task, new improvements for the DebugView window and more.
Let me guide you through the new features and improvements that are coming with R3 2020 for Telerik JustMock.
Microsoft claims that the future lies in .NET 5 as a next step in the development of .NET. By taking the best from .NET Core, .NET Framework and Xamarin it will produce a single .NET runtime and framework that can be used everywhere and has uniform runtime behaviors and developer experience. With the intention of providing you with the ability to use JustMock and .NET 5 as early as possible, we implemented preliminary support.
We know how important code coverage can be for the success of your project and having the ability to create a code coverage report within your CI/CD can be mandatory. With the latest release for 2020, by popular request, we’ve further developed JustMock Azure Pipeline Task to support Code Coverage for .NET Core. The new version of the extension is already uploaded, and the task will be automatically updated in your pipeline. If you would like to try it here is the link to the marketplace.
We are continuing our efforts to provide you with an easier way of debugging your unit tests and better understanding what is happening with your mocked objects. With R3 2020, we ensure that the DebugWindow functionality works with multiple instances of Visual Studio. This improvement makes certain that there is no mixture of information flow from one instance of Visual Studio to another.
We received a handful of requests from our clients to make the enable and disable process much easier as currently it takes some effort involving the registry. We heard your voice and we implemented enable and disable buttons in the Visual Studio extension.
Sometimes you need to create a specific mock object in your class or test initializing methods and use it in your test. The JustMock DebugWindow is enhanced to support this scenario and show you all the information you need.
With the latest release for 2020, by popular request, we’ve added the JustMock profiler to the JustMock.Commercial NuGet package allowing you to streamline your CI/CD builds. To configure it, you should install the R3 2020 JustMock.Commercial NuGet package to your project and reference it from the NuGet cache within your Azure Pipeline task. Stay tuned for a step by step blog post on how you can configure your JustMock Azure Pipeline task.
